The most anticipated EVs of 2022: BMW, Audi, Tesla

Car brands love to surprise us with unusual novelties. In the next year, we expect to see the new BMW, Audi, and Tesla. Let’s take a closer look at these mind-blowing cars!

BMW i4

2022 will mark the year that BMW gets serious about EVs. While its previous offerings, the i3 and i8, were low-volume models, the all-new 2022 BMW i4 signals electrification in one of the brand's core segments. It's essentially the electric equivalent of a gasoline-powered BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe.

BMW will offer their first electric Gran Coupe in two versions. The 2022 BMW i4 eDrive40 is a low-slung 335-horsepower rear-wheel-drive sedan. The base model in the lineup, the i4 eDrive40 has a starting price of $55,400 and a BMW-estimated range of up to 300 miles on a single charge.

Upgrading to the 2022 BMW i4 M50 earns you an all-wheel-drive dual-motor setup that's good for 536 horsepower and a 245-mile range. Starting price for the i4 M50 is $65,900. The company predicts a zero-to-60-mph time of just 3.7 seconds. The i4 is set to arrive in spring 2022.

Audi e-Tron GT

The all-new 2022 Audi e-Tron GT uses electric motors in the front and rear to create 469 horsepower in normal driving and up to 522 horsepower for 2.5 seconds when launch control is active. That's enough power to propel the low-slung four-door from zero to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds.

Even quicker is the 2022 Audi RS e-Tron GT. It uses a different rear motor and produces 590 horsepower in normal mode and 637 horsepower with overboost. It can move from zero to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds.

Audi estimates the e-Tron GT will have a 238-mile range on a single charge. The RS e-Tron GT is expected to have a 232-mile range. A leather-free interior using recycled materials such as Dinamica and Alcantara comes standard. Pricing starts at $99,900 for the e-Tron GT and $139,900 for the RS e-Tron GT.

Tesla Roadster

According to a recent tweet from Tesla's Tweeter-in-Chief, Elon Musk, the production of the second-generation Tesla Roadster is now set to begin in the near future. The incredibly quick two-seater was originally slated to arrive in 2020, but like most Tesla products, it has faced delays.

The new tri-motor Tesla Roadster is a huge leap forward from the original Lotus Elise-based Roadster. According to Tesla, it can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in as little as a neck-snapping 1.9 seconds and hit a quarter-mile in 8.8 seconds. These numbers have not been independently verified by anyone outside of Tesla.

Tesla estimates peg the car's range at up to 620 miles on a single charge. Prices start at $200,000, with a $50,000 deposit required to hold your place in line. You can reserve a $250,000 Founders Series Tesla Roadster with a $250,000 deposit.
